Facebook Data Scandal Delays Home Speaker Debut at Annual Developer Conference

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 30, 2018

Question: Are the Facebook sheeple outraged?

http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/03/29/facebook-data-scandal-delays-home-speaker-debut/

Public outrage has dampened any potential excitement surrounding Facebook’s latest way of mining your household for information.

The house that Zuckerberg built is shaking on its foundations in the wake of its recent scandal. After hemorrhaging more than $70 billion in 10 days, the social media giant is watching users exit en masse, alongside brands like Playboy and fellow entrepreneur Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Tesla deleting their pages. Even WhatsApp founder Brian Acton has declared that “it’s time.”…

Be seeing you

Zuckerberg: Maybe tech should face some regulations

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 22, 2018

Zuck seems to be limiting the regulation discussion to advertising content and not news and content censorship nor how Facebook deals with data banked personal information.

Facebook is CIA/In-Q-Tel funded so my guess is Zuck will talk a good game. Uncle and Zuck will do nothing to effectively hinder the operation.

“Actually, I’m not sure we shouldn’t be regulated,” Zuckerberg said in an interview with CNN that represented some of his first public remarks since the Cambridge Analytica controversy plunged his company into crisis and led to calls for his testimony to Congress.

“I actually think the question is more ‘what is the right regulation?’ rather than ‘yes or no, should it be regulated?’” Zuckerberg told CNN.

The Facebook CEO said that “he would love to see” new transparency regulations for political advertisements. Facebook has been criticized for a lack of transparency.

Obama Pressures Facebook to Censor News; Zuckerberg Complies and Crushes Trump on Facebook

Facebook has caved to Democrat political pressure and is censoring newsfeeds on users’ pages, as Mark Zuckerberg explains, for their own good.  The progressives at Facebook have gone nuclear.

We built Facebook to help people stay connected and bring us closer together with the people that matter to us. That’s why we’ve always put friends and family at the core of the experience. Research shows that strengthening our relationships improves our well-being and happiness.  But recently we’ve gotten feedback from our community that public content — posts from businesses, brands and media — is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.

Cutting through the Orwellian talk of connecting us together and ‘feedback from our community,’ this is an entirely political story.  After Donald Trump’s election, Zuckerberg came under tremendous pressure to use Facebook for the Democrats’ Resistance. Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook Wants To Know Who Or What You Sleep With

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 25, 2018

This Facebook. This is Zuckerberg. It should surprise no one.

“Confusing” the public since 2004.

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/25/facebook-asks-sexual-preferences/

Facebook is reportedly asking some users who or what they are sleeping with, and it is not exactly clear why.

The social media company often asks people to provide more basic personal information to be included on their respective profiles, like gender, birthday, former schools, work history, email addresses, and even religion if one feels so inclined. But it also apparently asks some users to finish the statement “I usually sleep with…” in order “to help friends get to know you,” according to Business Insider. Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook developing ‘Portal’ gadget which will let it put microphones and cameras in people’s homes

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 11, 2018

The fact that Zuckerberg expects these things to sell tells you the sheeple population won’t be going down anytime soon. This is sad.

Building 8 is a top secret Facebook division which used to be headed up by Regina E. Dugan, former boss of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is dedicated to military research. Last year, Facebook admitted its own research wing was working on technology which can read people’s minds at 100 words per minute.

In George Orwell’s 1984, the oppressive rulers of Oceania use devices called telescreens to closely monitor and repress citizens. Now Facebook looks set to follow in the Party’s footsteps by putting its own firm’s microphones and cameras into people’s homes. The social network is planning to release its first ever piece of consumer hardware which will be called Portal and cost a whopping $499 (£368), a website called Cheddar has claimed.

Facebook And Twit-ter Sell Out Their Subscribers Again

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 23, 2016

The last post described the all too common pot/kettle situation with the press. Those screaming ‘fake news’ are the ones causing the problem.

Facebook feigns shock all the while giving China custom censorship tools in exchange for access. Censored news is fake news no matter what weasel words are used to justify it.

Now we learn:

Facebook has restricted content in other countries before, such as Pakistan, Russia and Turkey, in keeping with the typical practice of American internet companies that generally comply with government requests to block certain content after it is posted.

But the new feature takes that a step further by preventing content from appearing in feeds in China in the first place. Read the rest of this entry »
